KIRKUS REVIEW

This homely story of a sportsman's play dates from summer vacations when he packed his rod, overalls and a few treasures and set off on the interminable train ride to the country. From barefoot days with best times learning to fish and shoot,until we find him years later an expert on these sports giving advice on partridge driving, hints on bagging a twelve-pointer with your last shell, finding birds everywhere and even stumping the experts by taking fish with a bucktail long before they are on the market. It's good gunning, fishing, dog training and good reading, simple tales of the life every sportsman longs to lead again and loves to read about, reminiscently.
